So what can we actually do now?
I wrote to my MEPs (responses: Greens - good, Lib Dems - good, Tories -
surprisingly good, Labour - shockingly biased and disgustingly led by the
US state department) and my Westminster MP , Tony Casale (Labour)
( response from MP: Good , response from DTI : utter crap).
I don't really know what else to do. I guess I can start taking days off
work to go to Brussels sometimes when these kinds of things happen, but
does it have any chance of actually doing anything? Write to newspapers?
What do we do now? This issue seems so hopeless with the autocratic nature
of the EU, and the lack of any attempt to even try to base the decision on
evidence, logic or even democratic choice from the commission.
